The Happiness Project: More Than a Net

I thought my 15 year old was kidding when she asked for a bad mitten (badminton?) set for her birthday. Fortunately, her father was listening more intuitively that time, so we were prepared on the big day.
The rackets and birdies will probably eventually go the way of our tetherball pole, bocce ball stuff, and maybe even the croquet stuff. But right now, we are a badminton-crazy family, and that is something that makes us smile.

For more happiness, go here.

Those games are never truly gone. All it takes is someone to get them out and soon you have a crowd playing!

Ah! Badminton! Hot, humid days whacking that birdie around and then jumping in the pool to get the itchy grass off our ankles and to cool down. Thanks for making me happy too:D

I loved playing with bad mittens as a girl! I hope it stays up and gets loads of use for a long time :-)
